It is a man-made saltwater beach. The water slide and swing rope were a lot of fun to do and watch. There's a volleyball court, music, restaurant too. Good relaxing place to... read more

You will get a little history lesson here in the reading, but there is not much to see. For 10$ Belize, you walk through 3 large very hot and dark rooms. The first is a bit silly with a bunch of foliage, and a fake bird. There is an empty pond and a plastic skeleton here. The next two rooms... More

Man made beach. Water slide, swinging rope, volleyball, music, restaurant....cool place to hang out. Took kids there (ages 10 +12)...they were a bit dissatisfied with it. I thought it was a nice place to chill, but would have preferred a place to snorkel. A place more "Belize". Felt like I was at an extremely nice lake that could be anywhere.... More

This area gives rise o the imagination of America in the 1950's with its slow pace and old-fashioned lifestyle. The history of Belize can be traced before the Spanish explorers through the British times and in between. What a colorful history!

It's worth the short drive/shuttle from the cruise ship. Good eats, drinks, a beach/lagoon with water slide and a top notch museum on the history of Belize. Of course if you're spending more time in Belize see the actual Mayan ruins and spend some time in the Cayes!

The beach was man made water very cold. Volleyball, swimming, giant slide swing/rope, dancing, restaurant, historical lil mini museum , LIVE DJ on beach (music too loud) but okay bathrooms were clean and nice scenery. Slide was great & free tubes if you just want to relax in the water. It was very hot plenty of lounge chairs but not... More

Stopped here for lunch while traveling. Great view from the restaurant, affordable prices. Food was average, but the atmosphere made up for it.

As we were going from cruise ship to port, guy on tender boat told us he could set us up on tour to go to beach. Instead tour bus takes us to a man made pond. Plus it's going to cost us an extra $10 to swim. We were only planning on being there an hour and a half so... More

I went here for lunch with three friends. It was a long way out of town to just go for lunch but my friend had heard that the food was good here and it was. Service was quick and efficient and friendly. Would try another restaurant in town next time I visit. Thank you.
